Re: Why the QL ?

Hi Andrew,

my friend, and colleague, "Nick" also from Romania, tells a similar story. His computer was one of the many Sinclair Spectrum clones that apparently were available back then. He's well into Linux and Raspberry Pis (pi's? pies? What's the plural of pi?)

Cheers,
Norm

Cheers,

Re: Issue 8 discussions...

Morning Dave,

I suppose that question depends on who is having to do the soldering ("soddering" for the USA ;)

Cheers,

Sounds like the usual problem I'm in the middle of fixing for qxltools. Structure field alignments. :(
